Zelenskyy implores Grammy viewers to support him 'in any way you can'
During Sunday's star-studded Grammy Awards celebration in Las Vegas, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy made a surprise video appearance. He pleaded with viewers to support his country "in any way you can."
The silence of ruined cities and dead people is opposite to music", said Zelenskyy in the video intro to John Legend's rendition of "Free", which featured Ukrainian musicians and a reading by Ukrainian poet Lyuba Yakimchuck.
The Ukrainian conflict broke out more than a month ago when Russian forces invaded, forcing millions of civilians from their homes and destroying everything in their path. Russian forces have called their activities in Ukraine "special operations."
In the U.S. Congress, Japanese National Diet, British and Australian parliaments, and the Israeli Knesset, he has pleaded with allies to make their support for his country. On Sunday, he appeared at an event dedicated to music, the universal language of universal understanding.
